Holiday Feast

HOLIDAY FEAST !

Happy 2018 darling!

How are you and everything going? Are you ready for business?  I personally thank God for the year that was and I look forward for all the lessons, growth, maturity and blessings that 2018 has in store for me, and  adding to that I’m wishing you guys the best of lucks through the year, cherish the moment as it  will come.

So, how about a little throw back?  Let’s play  rewind to the holiday season, the season when calories didn’t really matter (right?) The season of being extra..LOL Well, this post  is influenced by your insta DMs guys as I shared some of Christmas lunch menu and you my beautiful people asked why I shouldn’t  do a full post of my menu. Now, here it is today sharing about my Christmas and  a little recap on what I serve for  Christmas Lunch.

On the Christmas that was, I started my day around 5:30 am straight to church. I knew the kitchen was waiting for me back home so as everybody else was asleep my sister and I opted for the morning mass and by 7:30 am we were back home screaming ‘Merry Christmas’  from a distance even before we made our entrance home. Later my family also went to church and I knew by 11am they will be back home and I never wanted to keep them waiting.

 

Holiday Feast

To begin with I set up a table using some flowers from my garden, I wanted something simple but inviting.

I created my menu using some Christmas song Titles, I found it cool and fun and everybody loved it.

 

My plan was to to print it out but I had power cut just before I did it hence I ended up making some cards on each menu which at the end turned to be even a better idea.

 

Here is the menu;

Apart from wine and Beers this home made juice was ice on ice, they loved it. I always enjoy seeing others enjoy  most.

 

This  menu does not necessarily have to be for a special occasion, you may decide to dedicate a time out of your busy schedule and spoil yourself and loved ones with it.

Is there any thing from this menu that you would love me to make a proper post on how to prepare  it? Let me know in the comment box.

 

 

Best part is, if you are in Dar es Salaam and would love me to cater you & your guests  or you may need some cook lessons at your house just dial my number ( +255719 024070). Hope to meet you 🙂
